Final qualifying results were delayed due to protests in both the mens and womens events. In the men's Bas DeBever protested his disqualification and was reinstated to 7th position. In the women Lisa Sher was reinstated to 6th which bumped Cecil Gambin out.
Daamiann Skelton will not race this event. During practice she caught and injured her right foot (same foot she broke a year ago). It was decided that it was not worth the risk with the DH finals 1 week away.
